Hi, I’m Soleil Ignacio. I’m a Filipina illustrator working mostly within the fashion and beauty industry. Growing up, I’ve always been obsessed with drawing girls—from Ariel The Little Mermaid, Sailor Moon, to Barbie.
In college I was about to study Interior Design (thanks to another obsession—The Sims) but took up Visual Communication instead. Immediately after school, I started working as a Graphic Designer then Art Director for a local magazine; and in 2011 I decided to quit and focus on illustration. Through the years I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing brands like Forever 21, TRESemmé, Seventeen Magazine, L’Oreal Paris, Sfera, La Mer, and Jo Malone London, amongst many others.
Currently I’m working in my studio in Manila, together with my partner Kris Abrigo. But someday I’d also love to work/study in New York City or London! *shouting it out there for the universe to hear*
Soleil is also a member of ADC and Working Not Working.
